Aka the Snyder Cut.

In Kadam Jas Whedon, but the 2017 theatrical version was a critical and box office failure.

Whether you like it or not, maybe how much you like Seth Rogen. You get a lot of it – he plays two roles in an American pickle, the first playing the role of Herschel Greenboom, a struggling Jewish laborer who lives in the US in 1919. He works in a pickle factory – and this is the place to get weird – falls into a vat of pickle that preserves him for 100 years. He wakes up in Brooklyn in 2019 and hangs around with his great-great-grandson Ben, also played by Seth Rogen. If you embrace this creative premise, this is a great low-comedy for the small screen that has some impressive chemistry between Rogan and Rogan.
It is a small gem on HBO Max. Unexpected stars Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira cross a pair as a friend where pregnant teenager Veronica (Richardson) may undergo an abortion.

An upcoming drama featuring motorbikes. The Charm City Kings feature fresh young artists, including Zahi D’Allo Winston as the mouse, who drifted into the 14-year-old Baltimore’s biking world, much to her mother’s downfall.

This is a bit of a novelty inclusion. See what Robert Zemeckis (director of Back to the Future) and Anne Hathaway did with their return to the Roald Dahl classic. Jahzir Nadeem Bruno is the Hero Boy, a young boy transformed into a mouse by Hathaway’s sometimes CGI’d Grand High Witch. No one is saying that this 1990 is close to the Angelica Huston original, but it’s intriguing enough to look a bit.
Meryl Streep is playing the role of a freak writer in a Steven Soderbergh comedy. What more do you need to know? If you want to know more: Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Alice Hughes (Streep) is struggling to finish her next book, chased by her literary agent (Gema Chan). He boarded a cruise ship with old friends, which inspired him for the most famous work. Tensions are strong. It looks great – Soderbergh uses crisp, natural light – and most of the dialogue is improvisational. See how Diane Wiest, Candice Bergen, Lucas Hedges and the rest of the impeccable cast have fun.
Anne Hathaway and Chiwel Isofor star in this stunning romance-com heist film by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity).

This is not the most polished flick, but you are mainly for Hathaway and Ejiofor’s charisma. The inclusion of the epidemic will either intrigue you or you will be driven away.
